2. Easy Mongolian Beef

  • 1 pound sliced flank steak
  • 4-5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 seeded and diced jalapeno
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 sliced scallions
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 (additional) teaspoons cornstarch (for sauce)

With its slightly sweet but sticky sauce, Mongolian beef is a world favorite. But the version most people are familiar with actually hails from Taiwan. To make the popular version, you’ll want to coat the beef with two tablespoons of cornstarch; then set it aside. Add the oil to a heated pan along with the garlic, scallions, and jalapenos. After it cooks for a few minutes, add the beef and cook until it’s browned. Then, make the sauce with the remaining cornstarch, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Coat the beef well, warm the mixture, and serve.
